SAFE SCHEDULING – Appointments have been staggered and hours adjusted to limit the number of people in the clinic.
PRE-SCREENING – All patients are being pre-screened prior to their appointment via telephone for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors to ensure our clinic stays COVID-free. A second patient screening will be done upon entry into the clinic. Also, patients’ temperature will be taken using a digital thermometer.
PATIENT CHECK-IN – Only patients can enter the clinic, family members will have to wait outside. In case a family member must accompany the patient they will be subject to full check-in protocol. Patients are requested to arrive at the time of their appointment, not any earlier, to maintain social distancing. In case of early arrival, we suggest waiting somewhere safe outside the clinic, such as in a car.
MASKS ARE MANDATORY – Patients and staff are required to wear masks while in the clinic. We can provide masks if the patient does not have their own.

ADAPTED ARRIVAL PROCEDURES & SIGNAGE – Patients are being guided directly from the entrance to treatment rooms to eliminate physical contact with surfaces.
